Vote now for Lonmin as the worst Corporation of the Year

    ura soul

    @ The Public Eye Awards 2013 www.publiceye.ch www.facebook.com/publiceyeawards www.twitter.com/peawards Film by Groundwork / Friends of the Earth South Africa, www.groundwork.org.za Reason for Nomination: The deadly arm of the platinum rush: managers of the world's third largest mining concern Lomin urged the South African mining ministeryto take „appropriate" measures against striking mine workers at the Marika mine—with the help of the police or the army. A short time later, 44 protesting mine worker were shot dead by the police and 77 more were seriously wounded. Many of the victims were about to surrender after the police had fired into the crowd with rubber bullets. The police gave no warning before they started shooting with live ammunition. One day after the massacre, Lonmin threatened all workers who continued to strike with dismissal. The workers had stopped work because Lonmin managers had repeatedly failed to show up for wage negotiations, even though management was well aware of the hard and dangerous working conditions and the widespread poverty in the miners' slums. The wages of many miners are not enough for a dignified life. Lonmin clearly stops at nothing as it exploits people and the land in South Afrika. More Information: www.publiceye.ch/en/lonmin
